The Democrats’ efforts to undermine democracy do not affect only Republicans, as was shown by the four-Democrat Colorado Supreme Court majority that booted former President Donald Trump from the ballot earlier this week.

They even turn on each other.

The Gateway Pundit reported on Thursday that Democratic officials in four states — Florida, Tennessee, North Carolina, and Massachusetts — have opted to allow only President Joe Biden on their respective ballots in the Democratic primary column and exclude challenger U.S. Rep. Dean Phillips, a Minnesota Democrat.

“The decision, which effectively crowns Joe Biden as the Democratic nominee in those states without primary contestation, has incited allegations of disenfranchisement and questions about the democratic process within the party,” the Gateway Pundit reported.

“The true threat to the demise of our democracy lies with the Democrats, not Donald Trump. The communist party will now decide the Democratic Party’s nominee and who they install into the White House.”

Tampa attorney Michael Steinberg claims in a lawsuit challenging the party’s decision that Phillips’ rights to due process and equal protection were violated by the decision to restrict the ballot to only Biden.

Steinberg called the party’s actions “arbitrary and capricious,” the Times reported.

As the Tampa Free Press reported earlier this month, the Florida Democratic Party’s Executive Committee told state elections officials that Biden would be the only name on the ballot this year.

Phillips has sued for being kept off the ballot.

Meanwhile, The Gateway Pundit reported that Democrats in Tennessee and North Carolina also have put only Biden’s name on the ballot, as North Carolina offers a “No Preference” as an alternative option.

In response to the news, Marianne Williamson, another long-shot Democrat who is challenging Biden, noted on social media, “Florida, Tennessee, North Carolina, now Massachusetts… This is a pattern and we cannot let it stand.”
